Now Offering TeleHealth Appointments

Let us visit your home through video conferencing to discuss your pet’s quality of life.

Living with a dear pet struggling because of age or illness is difficult, but hospice and palliative care is a gift you can provide for your pet and yourself.  A TeleHealth Appointment with our highly-skilled veterinarians facilitate in-depth conversations using video conferencing to help you better understand the quality of your pet’s life. We’ll also explain options for comfort and end-of-life care.  Our TeleHealth Appointments are 45 minutes with a fee of $199.

What to Expect in a TeleHealth Appointment

Our veterinarian will:

  • Join you in a video conference so that they can observe your pet in their home environment and speak with you ‘face to face’.
  • Listen as you describe your pet’s conditions and share your concerns.
  • Ask questions that will help them to make suggestions and recommendations.
  • Answer your questions regarding appropriate care for your pet.
  • Prepare medical records and follow-up with a detailed summary of the appointment.

The possible outcomes of the appointment are:

  • Recommendations for the initiation of hospice and comfort care for your pet.
  • Recommendations that lead to a follow-up euthanasia appointment.
  • Recommendations that may suggest additional treatment from your pet’s veterinarian.
